Kapamilya teen actor Awra Briguela took to Instagram to share the wonderful news that his father has finally finished college.

Briguela’s father Oneal Bryan graduated from a college in Las Piñas City with a degree in Business Management in Human Resources.

“Sabi nga nila, ‘it’s better than late, than never’. Kaming lahat ng anak mo sobrang saludo sa’yo!” Briguela captioned his Instagram post which shows his father wearing his graduation gown and holding his diploma.

In an interview with DZMM, Briguela said that his father had to stop college so that he can work and send him and his siblings to school.

“’Yong time na naghinto siya sa pag-aaral, ’yon ’yong kailangan niyang magtrabaho para sa’ming mga anak niya. No’ng ako ’yong breadwinner, si Papa ’yong bumalik sa pag-aaral naman kasi sobrang halaga talaga ng pag-aaral para sa kaniya. Gusto niyang ipakita sa’min ’yong importansiya ng pag-aaral,” Briguela said.

Briguela, who is currently a high school student, said that it is never too late to achieve what a person wants to pursue in life.

“Kahit anong taon o kahit matanda ka na puwede ka pa rin namang mag-aral. Iba pa rin talaga kapag nakakuha ka ng diploma galing sa kolehiyo. Sobrang importante talagang may pinag-aralan,” he said.

Briguela became an internet sensation after posting several “Awrahan” videos.

He was then discovered and appeared on several film and television projects, including “Ang Probinsyano” and “Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids”.
